Social networking via the Internet has become all the rage. People post everything and anything. Some of the well-known sites are Facebook, Myspace, twitter, and LinkedIn. LinkedIn is a professional networking site. The others are mostly social. These sites are an excellent means of keeping in touch with and meeting others. There are also some points to be considered before you go post crazy! Keep in mind that many potential employers check out applicants on the web. Employers have not selected individuals for positions based on Internet postings. Posting those wild party pictures may cost you a job opportunity in the future. Do not post anything that you would not be comfortable showing your family or the press for that matter. Professional sites offer an excellent forum for job hunting and connecting with other professionals in your field.
